Democrats are strange.

They are b*tching about investing $19 million to improve the VA facility for those who we should be taking care of, and then throw $60 million minimum per year to provide health care for illegal aliens.

Their priorities are screwed up big time.

"House Capital Investment Committee chair Rep. Alice Hausman, DFL-St. Paul, said the cost seemed exorbitant."

I understand that there is a direct, incontrovertible, 1 to 1 mathematical correlation between priorities and campaign contributions.

That is why every one of those currently in office should be voted out. The Founding Fathers envisioned a part time civilian legislature where the legislator's primary job was not to get himself re-elected. We jumped off that track a long time ago.
